I don’t remember the origin of this paragraph, but this morning as I was cleaning up my “note app”-reading it, reminded me of it’s relevance in my life.
Busyness and fruitfulness are two different things. Some of the most fruitful people I know are also some of the most present, focused, relaxed people I know. They don’t waste their energy on things that they shouldn’t waste their energy on. They focus it. “Need to love Jesus, need to love my spouse, need to love my kids, need to help the poor, need to serve those in need. Going to do that and not going to waste all my time and energy on everything else.” Don’t exchange busyness for fruitfulness.
This being Valentine’s Day, I’m looking forward to dinner with the most important people in my life. And I will be. Present. Focused. Relaxed.
